CE Sponsor Registration Requirements - CFP Board

For Education Partners


CE Sponsors

CFP® professionals are required to complete 30 hours of Continuing Education (CE) every two years, including 28 hours of general CE. CE providers may register as general CE sponsors to offer CE programs for general CE credit.

For a program to be considered for general CE credit, CE sponsors must submit program applications for review. Program content must relate directly to one or more of CFP Board's Principal Knowledge Topics and meet CFP Board's general CE requirements.

Sponsor and program registration accepted for a calendar year giving the sponsor flexibility to offer the program multiple times. Sponsors renew their registration and program registration annually at the end of each calendar year to remain active.
